As the Arab world starts to realize that if it weren’t for our corrupt dictators, we’d be much more united, more inspirational revolutions are taking place. Sadly for our Libyan brothers and sisters, their task is by no means a walk in the park, thanks to a delusional Gaddafi that makes Mubarak look like a reasonable diplomat.
I went off to cross the border with a group of friends, taking with us all the medical supplies we could put together. While there, I tried to do some basic citizen journalism and document what I could. The following is the outcome.

There were those who were against the revolution in Egypt in the name of ‘stability’, and they’re slowly but surely making the realization that opposing the movement is far from wise. Likewise, those who claim that any help to a fellow Arab country’s struggle is at the expense of our own are being naive, and time will tell. Victory is inevitably ours, because we are the people we’ve been waiting for.
